The President of Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mr. Muhammadu Buhari has met with the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode in a closed door meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The governor will be updating the president on recent developments taking place in All Progressive Party (APC).
Sycamoretimes has reported how Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the leadership of the APC in Lagos State is mounting pressure on Ambode to drop his second term bid.
Tinubu, who is alleged to have endorsed Ambode’s opponent within the APC, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had refused to back Ambode’s second term ambition despite pleas by concerned individuals and several socio- political groups from within and outside Lagos state.
Governors under the platform of APC, who met on Wednesday night in Abuja, had on behalf of Ambode, sought the intervention of President Buhari in the APC crisis in Lagos state.
The Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum, Gov. Rochas Okorocha, delivered the governors’ message to the president few minutes before his meeting with Ambode.
